Please try to reproduce the error using drm-tip (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/drm-tip) and kernel parameters drm.debug=0x1e log_buf_len=4M, and if the problem persists attach the full dmesg from boot.

dmesg from drm-tip 2019-01-18
No more "[drm:intel_dp_get_link_train_fallback_values [i915]] *ERROR* Link Training Unsuccessful" but I still observe the issue.
Alex, Do you still see the issue? Can you please attach the latest dmesg from latest kernel (preferably with drmtip)?
My apologies for not responding on this issue.
